In Topic: this place is to quiet

02 October 2014 - 02:22 PM

These posts are making me fucking sad.

I feel you man, I wish I could relive the days when this place was at it's height.  All of the YouTube videos, and the radio show and everything were so amazing.  I just feel like the industry has stalemated, and that trickled down to the online communities.  The sport hasn't been evolving fast enough to stay fresh, even Nation has decreased traffic.  I believe that the sport as a whole and this site will make a comeback one day, it's just gonna take some real exciting innovation, and a spot in the eye of the public again. 

 

Though, if we really do want to keep this site and sport alive and fresh, they only way is by telling people about the community and the sport and spreading the word. Lamenting about the possible loss of a website will do no good.  It's all in our hands


In Topic: it finally happened to me..

I only have the rebuild kit that came with it and that's still pretty limited

The rebuild kit should come with at least one replacement for every o ring.

 

go to a hardware store and buy o rings. Don't go to home depot or lowes they have terrible selection.
and yeah it's almost definitely the o-ring in the bolt stop, none of the others would cause a leak down the barrel. 


In Topic: Getting back in to paintball!

I'd recommend a different mask, any mask that needs a fan to prevent fog isn't a mask you wan't.  Also I've never used one but masks that cover you entire head look incredibly hot. A good mask will last you for years to come


In Topic: worst gun

03 August 2014 - 09:51 PM

^ that just looks like a pile of garbage 
honestly it's really hard to pick a worst gun, because for the most part guns work well. But I'd say any of the plastic stacked tube blowbacks that were released some time ago.  
People rag on ions and spyders but they weren't that bad in comparison.


In Topic: Planet Eclipse Loader Patent

03 August 2014 - 09:32 PM

And how do you hold your marker comfortably with the loader in that position?

you get your head out of your butt and realize this is not anything like what the final design will be
I'll assume you don't know what a patent is, basically eclipse patents the operation of the loader, that's all. that image you see serves just to show a possible configuration of the technology they wish to create.  I don't know how it's supposed to work, but basically assuming this patent is granted to eclipse they will take that weird screw shaped thing and implement it into (most likely) a more traditional loader design.  They own the method for delivering paintballs, they could arrange it into a bullpup thing as shown or they could make a traditional top mount hopper, either way assuming the picture on a  patent is the final design is foolish. The only information you should take from that image is the screw shaped tunnel around a cylinder is a possible new method for delivering paintballs. 

 it really makes me sad how hard you're pushing against innovation.

Also I think it looks cool and I'd really love to see them take this into production, it's been a LONG time since there were any major changes to loader operation besides the q-loader.
